Chief of Staff/Vice President, Medical Affairs
Cambridge Memorial Hospital (CMH) is a full service, acute care hospital committed to providing health care to the communities of Cambridge, North Dumfries and the region of Waterloo. CMH traces its roots to 1888, when the region’s first community hospital opened to treat patients. The Hospital’s modern/current mission is to be a progressive acute care hospital and teaching facility committed to quality and integrated patient-centred care. The Hospital employs 1,178 staff, 287 medical staff and midwives and has more than 500 volunteers.
CMH’s $187M Capital Redevelopment Project involved the construction of a new patient care wing. The 240,000-square-foot Wing A was opened January 18, 2020 and houses units such as the Emergency Department, Intensive Care, Birthing, Paediatrics, Medicine, and the Mental Health program. The state-of-the-art operating rooms will be put into service later this spring. The complete refurbishment of the existing Wing B patient care facility is the next phase of the project. The Hospital is one of 32 health care and health services agencies in Cambridge and North Dumfries that applied to become an Ontario Health Team and submitted a full proposal in the fall of 2019 that led to a successful outcome. Additionally, CMH recently completed their Accreditation and were Accredited with Exemplary Standing until 2023.
Cambridge Memorial Hospital is seeking an exceptional, visionary and innovative leader for the combined roles of Chief of Staff and Vice President, Medical Affairs (COS/VPMA). The COS/VMPA is appointed by, reports to, and is accountable to the Board of Directors for the professional supervisory duties, and to the CEO for administrative duties.
The COS/VPMA will actively support CMH’s pursuit of clinical excellence, maximizing quality, advancing best practices and transforming the patient and family experience. The COS/VPMA will play a key role in ensuring that the Hospital’s vision of Exceptional Healthcare by Exceptional People is at the forefront. As a champion of quality improvement, this leader will work closely with other members of the Hospital’s senior team and members of the clinical staff to achieve sustained improvements in program outcomes while advancing partnerships that promote a seamless and integrated patient journey.
Key leadership initiatives for the COS/VPMA will be to:
You are a physician licensed by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario or eligible for licensure. You are an experienced, inclusive and visionary leader with credentials and experience in both medical leadership and clinical practice. You are firm, fair, and highly regarded in your field of medical practice and have a breadth of medical leadership experience in formal leadership roles.

Recognized as an effective change leader and successful in building relationships, you have demonstrated your commitment to quality improvement and broader systems-level change.
